Into Light


A quick personal piece inspired in part by the album “Into Light” by the Schola Cantorum of St. Joseph’s Basilica. Learn more about their CD at

To me, it is the quality of light in this painting that is perhaps the most poignant aspect of the piece, and is what originally stirred my heart to paint it. Most of the light seems to come from the halo, which is by far the brightest element of the painting. It shines from behind her like the moon—a heavenly body that is beautiful not for the light it produces, but for the light it reflects. We love and honour Mary for her “yes” to God, who wanted to pour out, through her, the full force of his mercy and grace into our broken humanity. She is lovely because of Christ’s light shining so purely in her.

“Mary said to the Angel: Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done unto me according to your word.” —Luke 1:38
